The Richardson Woman’s Club is getting an accessibility makeover thanks to a new ramp/walkway to be constructed on the property. A construction bid for the project was approved by the City Council Monday night.

The ramp redevelopment project addresses safety concerns and ADA access requirements and features a new paved ramp/walkway leading from the front of the property to both the Clubhouse and the entrance to Founder’s Hall. The project also includes new landscaping and lighting.

The City-owned facility, located at 2005 N. Cliffe Dr., is named for the longstanding local philanthropic organization that has been managing it since 1969. It includes a historic home (aka “the Clubhouse”), a gazebo and the 200-seat Hall, all which are available for event rental. Proceeds benefit the Club’s numerous local philanthropies and scholarships.
